You're too young for that shit. Angry

Listen to the docs and be well.

RE: Heart attack
Sorry to hear this. Take care of yourself, eat well. Try to find things to laugh at. Keep us informed..... 'cause we care.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: Heart attack
Glad to see you are better and lived through it. Stents are an order of magnitude better than open heart surgery.

I was thinking the other day that if one of us succumbed to something like this, how would the others find out?

Hope you feel better, hopefully there was no permanent damage.

RE: Heart attack
If it was minor, they'd say minor. That's what they told me after putting two stents into me. They told you massive, believe them.

Take care of yourself: hope you feel better soon, but do take it easy.

RE: Heart attack
Thanks Guys and Gals.

It's good to know that you lot are out there with kind words whenever needed.

Told a very, very good friend about it, he is an practitioner nurse, one down from a doctor, who used to specialise in coronary care. His response: "So not a proper heart attack then? Bloody fraud!" He then spent the next half hour explaining about all the various medications I had been given and what I can expect over the next few months. His claim that it was not a proper heart attack was because it's not certain that some heart muscle has died.

I'm lucky to have you for general advice and my friend for specialist advice whenever I need it, at least I'm not on my own.
cheers
Steve

Agree with Heatheness ... do as you're told. Tongue
Millions of people go on, normally with stents .. but if you think it's necessary, you can use it as an opportunity to tweak your lifestyle to more healthy, if that's called for.

It's hilarious you bring up the "massive heart attack" thing.
Have you ever once heard a *man* say anything *other* than "I had a massive heart attack" ... like it's a badge of something. "Oh, I had a tiny heart attack" ... I think not. Laugh out load Laugh out load Laugh out load
So the fact THEY said that is hilarious ... but they do want you to exercise and eat right and take yer pills.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

My father had that kind of heart attack when he was 63 (little-to-no heart muscle death). He died at age 89, of causes completely unrelated to heart disease. Smile
